Alex Cross, Run by James Patterson

DON'T LOOK, ALEX CROSS Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared "industry parties," bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem's lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail. DON'T THINK, ALEX CROSS But Alex doesn't have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach. When a third mutilated body is discovered, rumors of three serial killers on the loose send Washington D.C. into an all-out frenzy. JUST RUN Alex is under so much pressure to solve these three grim cases that he hasn't noticed that someone else investigating him-someone so obsessed and so twisted that they'll do anything-ANYTHING- to get the vengeance they require.
This book was full of action. There were cases to solve left and right, but most of them were connected. Alex has three men to take down in this one before things spiral way too out of control.

I think this book was a lot better than the previous entry in the series. The bad guys were more interesting and it moved at a faster pace. There were also no terrorism sub-plots, which has left me disinterested for a bit in the last couple books.

The crime scenes were unique and reminded me of earlier cross books all at the same time. They were gruesome but psychologically interesting.

This one definitely kept me turning the page and wanting more. I can’t believe I am nearly caught up on this series!

4/5 stars
